Great catalonian food

From Tapas to dinner this restaurant is very busy serving up some great regional food. The venue was very busy but kept moving people through with ease. The wait staff were accommodating and handled this non Catalonian speaking aussie with respect. very much worth visiting

Plaza Independiente is full of places to eat so it's hard to work out which to pick. After circulating the square one full time, we plumped for Boira, mainly because of a review in a very old Rough Guide that we had with us. Unlike most people, we ate inside as outside on the plaza was v noisy and we... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Girona on a recommendation from a rough guide to Spain. We wandered up to Boira, which is situated in a busy plaza full of restaurants. There were two parts to the restaurant; the tapas bar (which was full) and the main part. We were keen to try the tapas menu, as... More

Slow service and food not fresh, had to return a simple salad. It's a pity because was a great restaurant in the past. Luckily the waiter was very friendly.

We ate here twice during our stay, choosing a total of 11 tapas dishes and every single one was divine. Our chocolate fondant was also excellent. The staff were friendly and very kind, the atmosphere was lively in the Placa de la independencia and I would certainly go again!

Late Saturday night heading up to the Placa de la Independencia I had no idea what to expect, and was met by a wall of cheerful chatter, a blaze of light, and a wonderful social scene. Without much thought I sat down at the first place that looked good, and ordered a quick and well priced three course dinner with... More

I dropped by on a midweek evening, they serve tapas all day but the set menu from 8pm, so as I was a little early I had a small beer outside. The service was very attentive, and promptly I was given an English menu on time. For €20 you get a 3 course meal with fresh bread & bottled water.... More

The many was very good price. Having 3 dishes and wine or bread and water is worth the price. Out of four 2 tried the menus and 2 the tapas. Can recommend the tomato tart and the olives. In the menu the tomato plus mozzarella and the potato omelet was nice. The service was okay, buzzy at lunch so we... More

I cannot say this was the best experience, but it is because the place is overcrowded. A lot of people come. I was on the flowers festival in Girona, and found the place - tried a goat cheese salad, fresh cooked fish and chocolate semifreddo. I got a lot of time, so I just enjoyed the view waiting for waitress... More
